What do athletes, soldiers, doctors, and IT professionals have in common? They are all using serious games to prepare themselves for events – potentially disastrous – that occur outside the norm of their trade. Serious games are video games that do more than entertain; in that they prepare professionals to work smarter by enabling them to visualize the consequences of their actions and explore different permutations of events in a visceral way.
